Dorothy Day: Selected Writings

£12.99

Product description

Dorothy Day was co-founder of the Catholic Worker movement, and one of the most challenging and inspiring figures of recent history.In her lifelong option for the poor and her unstinting devotion to active nonviolence, Day fashioned a new face for the gospel in our time. In 2000 the Vatican recognized her cause for canonization, and she was officially termed 'Servant of God.' Dorothy Day: Selected Writings is recognized as the essential and authoritative guide to her life and work. The writings collected here reflect her spirit: meditative, ironical, combative, filled with love for the Catholic Worker family, and suffused with her special sense of the 'holy sublimity of the everyday'.
